Background: I was born and raised in the Bay Area.   Upon graduating from UC Davis, I decided to venture out to New York to pursue my graduate studies.  I did my counseling training in New York City working with many diverse groups of students and engaging in various research opportunities with professors and peers.  After having spent two years in the East Coast, I decided that California was best suited for me.  Before joining Dougherty Valley High School in 2012, I worked in San Francisco and Pleasanton as a guidance counselor.  I have been a guidance counselor for over 10+ years.

I absolutely love counseling and working with students to find what they are most passionate about.  I hope to get to know every one of my students.

 

Teaching/Educational Philosophy: I am a strong believer that all students are capable of success.   With the proper guidance and support, every student can achieve.  My goal is for every one of my students to believe in themselves and believe that they have gained the right foundation and support to be productive and lifelong learners.

 

Personal Notes: My husband and I are proud new parents to a baby boy born in September 2014.  We  live locally in San Ramon and enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
